The Word IS ‘Terrorist!’


Time and time again — I’ve heard newscasters ‘ripping and reading’ the Associated Presses ‘FBI verses Apple’ story saying, “the San Bernardino Shooter.” It should be “…the San Bernardino TERRORIST.”

Syed Farook is a TERRORIST; his wife is a TERRORIST!

If he were jus’ a “shooter” at a post office, a “shooter” at a high school or the Uber “shooter,” the FBI wouldn’t give a crap about his iPhone and this wouldn’t be a story. It’s time to think, and rewrite where necessary, because words really do matter.
